I’l be the first to admit it. Finding the time and money to spoil yourself when you have kids in the mix is tough! When last did you feel pampered and spoilt? With kids to look after, our time and money is no longer our own to enjoy. Not often anyway! When last did you leave a salon with a gorgeous new hair style? When last did your man do a double take? And not because you had peanut butter sandwich in your hair!

When I do get round to making the time to get to my hairdresser he makes sure all these things are a given. I always walk out feeling pampered, sexy and spoilt. And my man ALWAYS does a double take. I started going to Jon Cartmel at Cutting Edge two years ago and now he cuts our entire families hair! There has not been a single time where i have not walked out completely happy and satisfied.

Firstly he is amazing with colour! When I decided to go the Ombre route last year, I didn’t even know what to ask for! All I had to do was send him a few pictures over whats app the day before my appointment and by the time I left the salon I had the perfect ombre of chocolate brown fading ever so perfectly into honey blonde. It’s a technique that is hard to master, yet he did the most incredible job. So good in fact that ive had girls walk up to me and ask where i have my hair done.The last time it happened i was at a wedding and a girl asked if she could take a picture to show her hairdresser (as she lived in jhb) and she left saying it was the most perfect ombre she had ever seen. Of course my words back to her were “i doubt your hairdresser is as good as mine!” And that the simple truth.

Secondly he is meticulous and takes his time. When he is cutting a new style he will keep asking if you are happy with the length, instead of chopping off too much too soon! He always does exactly what you ask him to do and listens well to your instructions while still telling you what may work better.

He is very accomadating and will always try and fit you in even if he is chockers, and he is well priced. Here is the link to his website: http://cuttingedgehair.wix.com/1
